Load up on guns
bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over bored and self assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my libido
Yea!

Hey!
Yea!

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my Libido
Yea!

Hey!
Yea!

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it was to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my libido
A denial, a denial
A denial, a denial
A denial, a denial
A denial, a denial
A denial!

    General CommentI don't agree. Lacey sings it the way it's supposed to be sung. Like she's high and fucked up. It's how Kurt wanted it to be preformed, do you think the dead guy gives a fuck? Seriously stop getting all Nirvanarulezdaworld noobish. Yeah Kurt does it the best but for fucks sake Lacey tried and hey it's not perfect but get your heads out your arses and realiase it wasn't supposed to be perfect, Kurt fought his whole life to not be perfect. So it's fucked up and it could be better but hey i think its great.

    General CommentActually one of the better covers of the song I've heard - especially given it's a female singer.

    General CommentWho says Flyleaf had to make it sound like Nirvana's version? They're adding their own style to the song and that's what makes them original.

    General Commentto whoever said her voice sounds scratchy, she purposly did that. in case you didnt get it the song is supposed to be sung in this partyish careless and im really high so i dont know what im singing style.(the im sorry im bad song for example, also sang in this type of style) it was intended to sound kinda messed up. i really hate when people are so naive to this kind of stuff. and besides that, do some research before you say anything about her voice. u cant say that she has a scratchy voice cuz you heard her sing this song like that. she sings other songs in a beautiful clear voice. making the scratchy high sounding voice prolly takes a lot more work than singing in her original voice. so please check your own voice and see how long your throat would last singing the way she does in this song,before you say anything about it. its harder than it looks. same as scremo music. i dont even like screamo that much, but you gotta understand, that its not just a bunch of screaming, its a ton of work. try screaming like that for a min straight and youll see what i mean.(even though scremo does freak me out a bit and doesnt even sound normal and human to me, i still undertsnd that its hard and its a specific style.)be more open minded!!!!

    General Comment"flyleaf are shit" excellent grammar sammy.

    Anywho I love flyleaf, seriously, but I can admit this cover sucks. AND I think you all should know that the actual band think it sucks as well, They're not happy with it, they didn't really want to do it, and they were more or less forced by the label to cover it.

    So relax and let up on the insults, or I'll have to give you a virtual backhand to the face. :)

    My OpinionSee, I'm a Nirvana fan and I love Flyleaf too... So I'd say that this cover should not be judged keeping in mind the original. I mean, obviously, the song itself has to be kept in mind. But you have to understand that Lacey can't do the song like Kurt did. This cover is like her interpretation of the song. Admittedly, it's different... But, what on earth, isn't that the point? They covered it because they wanted it to be Flyleaf's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'.... Nirvana is a legend and they rocked. All I say is, it's unfair to compare this cover with the original. it's just so.... DIFFERENT!

    General CommentI don't like flyleaf as it is I can't stand her voice she needs some vocal lessons but when I found out she did a remix on Nirvanas song smells like teen spirit I was so pissed. Her scratchy screeching voice just ruined that song ang if Kurt Cobain was alive he would be embarrased she needs to not ever have a remix of any awesome songs.........I don't even see how she is still around she sounds horrible like nails on a chalkboard!!!!!!!!!
